We found this by accident and once we complemented the food the owner and chef couldn't have been more gracious. We returned on our last night after they had stopped serving and the chef agreed to cook for us. Everything we tried, the fish, chicken , potatoes were memorable. Back in LA this quality of dish would cost far more. They couldn't have made us feel more welcome . An unexpected gem!

Great position and excellent food (although as you might expect not cheap.) Service was brisk at best, rude at worst. We were refused a table on the terrace even though we were eating and were prepared to wait - and people arrived later (once we were seated inside) without a reservation and were given a terrace table. The waitresses need to be given lessons in common courtesies - a smile, maybe eye contact, even the occasional per favore or grazie - all sadly lacking. We won't be coming again..

Close to the Duomo and Campo but down a quiet side street. Seem to specialise in champagne with only a choose of 2 red or white wines ? Saying that the bottle of Vermentino was very good. We both ate off the specials having a fancy macaroni(pici) cheese that was very good, followed by pork with tomatoes which was again excellent. A cosy place to have good food at sensible prices with friendly staff who really tried with their English. No problem to recommend whether you want a bottle of champagne or dinner, the sort of place you would like at the end of the street where you live so you could call in 2-3 times a week.

When walking down the hill from the Duomo in Siena we found this restaurant and stopped for a drink. What a fantastic stop it was. The result was two return visits for drinks and debate about whether this was the best place in Siena. The host Peepo was gracious warm and very knowledgeable which makes the visit special. Then out comes the food, magnificent!
We will certainly be back and cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
Thank you to everyone at Cava De Noveschi for a highlight of our trip to Siena

The most amazing food you could possibly taste. The chef is a genius! The service was second to none. Friendly and very accommodating staff. I had the gnocchi with mussels - it would have to go down as one of my most memorable meals of all time, my wife had the chicken which was also sensational. Dessert was panacotta with pistachio and I was in heaven... So close to the campo too but in a cute little quiet street made for a perfect night! You have to try this place!
